When someone comes to us for the first time, and it is clear they are evaluating estate planning and elder law attorneys, I always pride myself on being as transparent as possible about the services we provide. But regardless of whether they choose our firm or not, there are certain things I want them to look for during their search.
Perhaps the No. 1 factor is that the firm they choose should ideally specialize solely in this practice area.
Why is this so important?
When you are looking for an estate planning or elder law attorney, you are not going to want to work with a law firm that mainly does car wrecks and divorces but also kind of does wills and trusts on the side. In other words, estate planning may be a small percentage of what they do. That does not mean they are not qualified to handle your estate planning needs, but the problem with juggling with all of those practice areas is that they will not be able to dive deep into learning about what needs to be done in your unique situation.
I would look for attorneys who:
Focus on the practice area you need the most
Have good reviews and that other people are saying good things about them
Belong to professional organizations in those particular areas
Offer their team continuing education opportunities
